Digital Radiology and Ultrasound

When we need to look beneath the skin to determine the severity of an injury or illness, Central Animal Hospital uses the latest digital imaging techniques to make a more accurate diagnosis. Our radiology department is equipped with digital radiography and ultrasound to help us diagnose and determine the severity of your pet’s injury or illness in a non-invasive way.

Imaging techniques for accurate diagnosis

Dr. Keith reviews a patient’s X-ray

Having digital radiology on site allows us to quickly view radiographs, and if needed, send them to a certified radiologist for a consultation with the click of a button. Because we’re able to diagnose more quickly and accurately, we can develop the most effective treatment plan.

Both Dr. Keith and Dr. Smith have additional training in ultrasound to utilize this tool to quickly identify life-threatening conditions, as well as perform emergency procedures such as thoracocentesis and pericardiocentesis. We also have Dr. Rae who is an extremely skilled ultrasonographer available on a referral basis for detailed abdominal ultrasound, echocardiograms and ultrasound guided biopsies.

Important Information!

As an essential service in our society it is important that we remain open to help our patients in need of Veterinary care. In order to do accomplish this we must implement the following:
Maximum of one client in the waiting area at any one time, please wait in your car or outside until others have left the lobby area.
We are asking our clients to wait in their vehicle and we will retrieve your pet for any technician or surgery admission. We are emailing surgery consent forms. If you have been out of the country or have been exposed to anyone who is unwell we ask that you not attend the appointment.
We are asking our senior or immune compromised clients NOT TO enter our building. We will help in any way possible, please contact us.
We are cleaning intensively and frequently in order to keep our staff members and members of our community safe.
Facetime and telemedicine appointments are available with subsequent drop offs for diagnostics if needed.
